SDF militias take over most schools in Hasaka, causing overcrowding in classrooms and suffering

The US-backed SDF militias seized most of the governorate of Hassakeh’s schools, which limited the ability of the remaining public schools to teach the increasing numbers of students and led to overcrowding in the classrooms.

A week after the start of the new school year, local sources said that the schools’  classroom filled with more than 70 students, so some of the students had to stand because there was no place for them to sit-this happened  at a time when the world is seeking to achieve spatial distancing to prevent the Corona epidemic.
